Merri-bek BUG

Merri-bek Bicycle User Group


Merri-bek Bicycle User Group (Merri-bek BUG) is a non-profit organisation run by volunteers who love cycling and wish to share the enjoyment.

Merri-bek BUG is generously supported by a Merri-bek City Council Membership Activity Grant, which enables us to run our regular programme of rides and activities.


  • To promote greater and safer commuter and recreational cycling in the City of Merri-bek.
  • To liaise with local and state government authorities regarding on-road and off-road bicycle facilities in the City of Merri-bek.
  • To liaise with other bicycle groups for the promotion of cycling.
  • To provide affordable and accessible membership and activities for all members.
  • To organise recreational rides for BUG members.
  • The promotion of cycling in general.

Moreland Bicycle User Group Incorporated (Moreland BUG) was formed in 2006 through the cooperative merger of BrunsBUG and CoBUG (the Bicycle User Groups of Brunswick and Coburg), which had both been active in the Moreland council area (Melbourne, Australia) since their formation by Bicycle Victoria in 1990. In 2022 the Moreland City Council changed it’s name to Merri-bek and the BUG changed it’s name to match.
